|Student Contribution Band:||Band 3|
|Administered by:||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences|
Available to graduate students with a degree in Veterinary Science (other appropriately trained graduates may enrol at the discretion of the Director of the Australian Institute of Tropical Veterinary and Animal Science).
This subject covers those elements of veterinary science that influence or have potential to influence human health and wellbeing. Students will focus on zoonoses, particularly tropical zoonoses, and the reasons for emerging and re-emerging zoonoses; students will also learn to apply their veterinary knowledge in order to assess risks to the food chain and how to ameliorate and control those hazards through risk-based inspection and application of pre-requisite programs and HACCP. Students will also utilise risk-based approaches to assess the importance of surveillance schemes and biosecurity for both disease control and market access. The relevance of the One Health concept will be emphasised throughout.
